A Separation follows Oscar win with Asian film prizes

Iran's best foreign language Oscar-winner A Separation has netted four prizes at the Asian Film Awards.

It was named best film and won best director for Asghar Farhadi, plus screenwriting and editing trophies.

"This is an absolute honour," said lead actress Leila Hatami, who collected the best movie award at the gala in Hong Kong on behalf of the absent Farhadi.
